How to help



This year is very different. We held the Annual Flock Party virtually. There have been no teacher appreciation lunches or Concession Stand duties to fulfill. However, there are some really practical ways you can directly help our students.

SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

SUPPORT FROM THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY

We welcome support from the business community. If your business would like to become a Cards Supporter we will ensure the donation is focused on equitable learning during these difficult times. It will help ensure all students have the supplies they need, internet access, a ChromeBook or even a safe place to study and healthy food to eat. The needs are wide ranging.

Your Monthly Donations

We are going to need to pull together as a community to keep our children engaged and on track. Monthly giving will allow us to provide the best educational experience and support possible during the COVID crisis. We will continue to be responsible stewards of your contributions.

Thank you to all of you who have committed to monthly donations.

Here's what is Important: Equity

Our first concern this year is making sure every student has the tools for distance learning.

300 Lincoln families are historically underserved. They will be our priority.

  • We will be helping fund science kits, art kits, digital subscriptions for online learning and digital text books.

  • Writing Center Tutor. This important role last year helped students over the line with their writing projects. This year it will include college essay writing. We need to help fund this position to ensure they have enough hours in the day.

  • We have calculated that to save our fabulous teachers in specialty subjects such as AVID, art, ceramics, music and even math, we need to raise $500,000 a year.

Your donations will make a difference.

COVID INFORMATION

Sack Lunch Makers Needed Urgently

Work from home just became help from home.

Lincoln families have hit on a fast-spreading way to feed people suffering during the coronavirus lockdown. Anybody can sign up on this spreadsheet to make healthy sack lunches for the needy. They are distributed, same day, to unhoused people across the metro area.

Families shop for supplies and assemble sack lunches at home: A peanut butter and jelly sandwich, two pieces of firm fruit and two snacks, such as string cheese, protein bar, chips etc. (No drinks please, they can cause adult onset sibling rivalry!)

One kid and one parent can usually make 25 or 50 lunches in a couple of hours. Just bring the lunches to Lincoln on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. (times may vary, consult the signup spreadsheet) and from there we take care of distribution.

Organizer Mary Ann Walker first got word from homeless shelter Blanchet House in Old Town that they were in dire need. On April 10, Cards families working through Friends of Lincoln delivered them 4,500 lunches. Since then it has spread and we’re working with the Joint office of Homeless Services and Transition Projects.

They drive out to the edges of the city to camps where people are now afraid to leave their tents and make sure they get a meal.

“They’re all reputable nonprofits who know where the need is greatest,” said Walker. “So far, Lincoln families have delivered 7,000 lunches.”

If you can help out with this request, use the button below to sign up on the Google spreadsheet, no password required. Just add your family name and the number of lunches you can make and you’re in. Easy!

Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. Sign up ASAP.

Direct action. No waste. Change you can count on.

Remember:

  • You shop for supplies (Rule of Thumb: One loaf of bread = 10 sandwiches).
  • You and your kid make the lunches in your home under sanitary conditions.
  • You drop them at the school on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. (times may vary, consult the signup spreadsheet).

When you sign up, it is super helpful we know how many lunches to expect, so we can be there until all lunches have been dropped off. The need is great, and this is one place you can easily make a difference.
